Do you know a student who melts down before school, spends more time in the nurse’s office than the classroom, or is afraid to interact with other students or teachers?
While everyone has a rough day from time to time, a child who habitually avoids or refuses to go to school may be experiencing a deeper struggle with mental health.
In a new four-part podcast series titled “Understanding School Refusal” medical experts from Rogers Behavioral Health break down the complexities of school refusal. Throughout the series, you will gain insights into why children refuse to go to school, tips to help you identify behaviors associated with school refusal, and intervention strategies that educators and parents can use to work together to help kids get back to class.
